when she's been ducking everything? >> joan walsh from salon and lauren ashburnn is a reporter at "the daily beast." what is this twisted thought that they're spreading? >> well, they think she's faking an accusation is what they're spreading -- faking an illness. it's what you would hurl at a third grader. i don't understand making fun of someone who is sick. it's not human behavior that is christian or right at all. >> once the seriousness of secretary clinton's condition was revealed this week, john bolton was asked again whether he believes she's been away for health reasons. take a look at what he had to say. >> do you believe now the explanation that she's being treated for a blood clot in a new york city hospital? or do you continue to believe that there is some sort of an effort here to prevent her from having to testify fully about what she knows about benghazi? >> i didn't think that was the effort to begin with. i think they're trying to walk a fine line that does not affect the potential presidential candidate that we expect. >> joan walsh, dissect what you just heard in bo

republican hypocrisy on disaster relief of the past with salon's joan walsh. you can listen to my radio show on sirius xm radio monday through friday noon to 3:00 p.m. share your thoughts with us on facebook and on twitter using the #edshow. >>> welcome back to "the ed show." thanks for staying with us tonight. president obama has not taken a breather since inauguration a week ago. house of representatives, well, they're on vacation. and yet here is what the national republican congressional committee tweeted today. sign the petition to tell the president to get to work? the job isn't done. house speaker john boehner retweeted the same message. it's time for a brief recap of what president obama has been doing on the job. today, of course, it was the immigration speech in las vegas. and if you look like a man with wind at his back, yeah, i would say there is a pretty good reason. yesterday the president and vice president met with law enforcement around the country in pursuit of common sense gun measures. let's get to work. and president obama has named a new chief of staff. the president ha

immigrants already in the states. dana milbank is with me along with joan walsh of salon. joan, are you buying the demise of the tea party argument that dana has made? >> i would love to, but i think it's too soon. and dana says that himself. all of these data points are real. i guess the only one i would take issue with is the bobby jindal characterization. i think bobby jindal remains, i guess talks a good game but remains a conservative force and tea party force. because he's trying to do away with personal income taxes. and he wanted to eliminate hospice care for medicaid patients. so this perspective on spending that the tea party brought certainly hasn't gone away. anytime you've got 36 united states senators who voted down sandy relief a couple days ago, you know that something has fundamentally changed about the way that republicans talk about government. so i think it's too early to say that they're dead, but all the things dana points to are good signs and signs of some kind of sanity seeping in. >> and dana, maybe it's all in a name. because i think what continues on for sure

to talk to joan walsh. which is fun in this discussion. and eugene robinson who writes beautiful columns and you did it again on rg3. is there something wrong with this picture, joan walsh? as we look at it. >> yes. obviously there is, chris. it would be a somewhat different picture if valerie had been actually visible in it. so that's a shame. but it's not enough. she is one of the most influential if not the most influential person in the president's circle. we've got to give him credit for that. i think it's unfortunate the "times" piece did not talk about the fact he did nominate two women to the supreme court. and the court nominees have been good in terms of diversity. those two things mitigate a bit. however, you're right. that picture -- the general picture you showed before the segment of the top level appointees, john brennan we didn't mention, all being men. it is a change. it is a little disturbing. and the departure of somebody as luminous as hillary clinton, too, makes it feel more stark and more like, you know, really something that should be corrected. and i don't -- i th

is a four-letter word. don't say it. it's good advice, fellows. joining us, joan walsh, editor at salon.com and krystal ball host of msnbc's "the cycle." krystal, you ran for congress. did you have to be told not to talk about rape? did you have talking points on that? >> i don't recall anyone specifically sitting me down and saying don't talk about rape, but it was sort of understood. i don't think in the candidate training schools they normally have to go through, don't say rape, don't make women seem like they're sluts if they take birth control, don't call them prostitutes. >> although we're learning there are a number of efforts like this in terms of the gop candidate training that basically is centered on don't say rape but not changing the policies. >> exactly. let's talk about it in a different way. it struck me there was a conservative cruise after election day where scott rasmussen gave a panel on how to talk to women and minorities and some of the advice was great things like speak to them like they're adults. >> oh, nice. >> it's a start. >> hey, you know what, i'll take it.

now is nia maliqa henderson and joan walsh. >> joan, two weeks into the second term, what do you think he can get done? >> well, you know, i'm semi-optimistic about immigration reform, reverend al, although i'm starting to have a few more doubts. you know, if democrats were like republicans, they would not help the republy c llicans out and d immigration reform. but the president is trying, chuck schumer has put together this bipartisan group. but the thing that seems like a big sticking point to me is even the supposedly pro-immigration forces are saying enforcement first. and they're ignoring the fact that this president has been all about enforcement. i mean, you know it better than i do. there is some civil rights folks who are entirely happy with some of the deportation policy, border enforcement has gotten a ton of money and the net inflow of new, illegal immigrants doesn't exist, basically. they're acting like he's done nothing. so this clamber for enforcement first ignores the political reality and makes me wonder if people like marco rubio are trying to have it both ways. >> t
